ok, I'll use the tfm/vf that fontinst generated together with pfb 
generated through mmpfb.
It works with latex+dvips+ps2pdf/pdflatex, but using xelatex I get

*** font pkpr9d1000 not found in psfonts.map or host system; will 
substitute Helvetica glyphs

no matter if I use '-output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E"' or not. Are 
virtual fonts not supported?
